Hoarding

Some of you might think that it is not right to have money or even that money is evil. People who don’t know scripture often misquote 1 Timothy 6:10. Have you heard that money is root of evil? I’m sure you have.
Hoarding

Some of you might think that it is not right to have money or even that money is evil. People who don’t know scripture often misquote 1 Timothy 6:10. Have you heard that money is root of evil? I’m sure you have. However, 1 Timothy 6:10 says:

“For the LOVE of money is the root of all kinds of evil.” 

Money is neither evil nor good. It is what you do with it that matters. You decide what you’re going to do with money. Money cannot make any decisions. Are you going to hoard your money or are you going to use it to serve God’s kingdom? Are you going to walk past the hungry person on the street or are you going to buy them a meal? Having a lot of money does not make you evil and neither does being poor make you godly. There are plenty of rich people and poor people who do great things with their money to help others. There are others who are greedy and care only about money. They love money. Howard Hughes was once asked, “How much money is enough?” His reply was, “Just a little more.” He loved money. This is hoarding.

“I intend to be…the richest man in the world.” Howard Hughes

If you remember that everything belongs to God, you won’t hoard. God wants to bless you so you can bless others. If you make a fist, you are able to hold onto your money.

Nothing will get out, but nothing can get in. A clenched fist is useful for striking.

However, an open fist allows God’s provisions to flow from you.

When you keep your hand open, things can get out but they can also go in. Would you rather approach someone with a clenched fist or with an open hand?
